Todd & Joe Have Issues 11/30/17: Superman Annual #11

It has come up before, but Superman has tons of great stories. He gets a bad rap for being the Big Blue Boy Scout, not being able to kill, blah blah blah. The rub being, however, very few of those great stories were pre-Crisis (earlier that 1986). Superman Annual 11 is one of the rare exceptions.

Written by Alan Moore with art by Dave Gibbons,¬† two years before Watchmen, wrote one of the best known and most beloved Superman stories of all time. Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman show up at the Fortress of Solitude for Superman’s birthday, but someone else has already crashed the party.

This image above with Superman saying “BURN” is homaged even today, with the recent CW Crisis on Earth X event. But my favorite is great episode of the equally great Justice League Unlimited cartoon, “For the Man Who Has Everything.”

Any discussion, thoughts, feelings, criticisms¬†of this week’s selection can be placed below in the comments section. As well as suggestions about future choices for one shot issues to add to our list.
